Hi @KFSys

Here is the permission view Click Here

Hi @edexercom,

The Symbolic Link needs to be owned by the same user and group that’s owning the Website Folder otherwise you won’t be able to access it.

To give you the proper answer, I’ll recommend providing a little bit more information such as the permissions and ownerships of the folders that lead to the symbolic link. It’s 99% a permissions/ownership issue!
